New Grand Theft Auto V screen shots released

by: Nathaniel -
Hands down, my favorite part of GTA IV was how real and how interesting Rockstar's Liberty City was.  I felt like I was visiting a real place, from the grimy urban neighborhoods of New Jersey Alderney to the Broker boardwalk.  Often I would go to those areas and just hang out.

The first thing that struck me about GTA V, when those early screenshots started to roll out, was how I could grasp that same sense of place just from the screen shots.  Granted fake Los Angeles maybe isn't as cool as fake New York - after all, New York is my all-time favorite setting for fictional entertainment - but damned if I didn't feel the urge to just go and live in the places those early screen shots showed me. 

This new group of screen shots only reinforces what I already felt toward GTA V's setting, but with the added bonus of things like lightning, scuba diving, and giant guns.  September can't get here fast enough. 

I don't quite feel the need to break out the old grey market stasis chamber just yet, however, I am going to take the cover off and see about getting it serviced.
